"This year, we were introduced to three young girls from a state-run orphanage near
Lviv. Although twelve and fifteen years of age, they were severely under-sized and
malnourished. We used Ukr-Aid funds to enable them to go to the spa resort of Truskavets
for convalescence. We are also paying for an operation for the girl on the right
to help her speech."
Trustees, Ukr-Aid, 7th December 2008
Ukr-Aid engages in fund raising and appeals for charitable donations.
The charity raises awareness of the plight of underprivileged children in Ukraine.
The Trustees work directly with stakeholders in Ukraine, in particular the Ukrainian
Greek Catholic Church, to identify situations where there is genuine need.
The grants provided are used for basic needs, such as the supply of clothing and
school equipment, repair and maintenance of buildings, and the furnishing of dormitories.
Ukr-Aid collaborates with other charities engaged in similar work in Ukraine.
The work of the charity is carried out on a voluntary basis. There is no deduction
of expenses or charge for administration: 100% of all donations go directly to projects
The Trustees travel to Ukraine and review each project on a regular basis to ensure
that funding is appropriate and is used as intended.
Ukr-Aid has Independent Advisers who provide guidance and oversee its activities,
and Observers from the Ukrainian Greek Catholic and Roman Catholic Churches.
Our policy is not to retain large reserves, but to allocate funds to projects as
quickly as possible.
The work of the charity is governed by a Trust Deed. A copy of Ukr-Aid's Annual Report
, which includes a statement of accounts, is available on request.
